DOCUMENT ACTION: Correction of the Notice of Availability of the Proposed Notice of Sale for Proposed Sale 196.
Correction of the Notice of Availability of the Proposed Notice of Sale for Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Lease Sale 196 in the Western Gulf of Mexico (GOM)
DATES: Comments on the size, timing, or location of proposed Sale 196 are due from the affected States within 60 days following their receipt of the proposed Notice. The final Notice of Sale will be published in the Federal Register at least 30 days prior to the date of bid opening. Bid opening is currently scheduled for August 17, 2005.
On March 28, 2005, pursuant to 30 CFR 256.29(c) as a matter of
information to the public, the MMS published in the Federal Register
the Notice of Availability of the proposed Notice of Sale for OCS Sale
196 in the Western GOM. The title of that Notice correctly identified
the proposed sale as an oil and gas lease sale in the Western GOM.
However, in the summary of the action, the sale was incorrectly
identified as a Central GOM sale. We are issuing this Notice to correct that error.
